Outboard Stalls at full throttle

6 posts in this topic

I have a 2001 90 hp Merc and it trolls great and runs great at 1/2 throttle.

When I go to full throttle, it bogs down--like it's starved for gas. When I squeeze the ball, it goes again for 30 seconds, then the same bog down.

What's up?

how old are the fuel lines? i think they can gradually break down get weak over time, when you're pulling alot of fuel(full throttle) they may be collapsing and inhibiting flow. Just an initial thought.

Your starving for gas.

Start with the fuel lines and primer bulb..

Fuel filter.

Fuel pump.

Carb

I've had that problem in the past and a new gas line and bulb solved the problem. When you are running the motor your bulb should not go soft so I would think that would be a good place to start.

If it's not the fuel line / primer bulb follow Surface Tension's order listed above - fuel pump might be next.

If you hit the choke when the motor wants to bog out does the motor pick up?

Does the fuel bulb get soft, or is it firm and squeezing it picks it up?

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
